Feeling Fireworks by Disney for Blind visitors
To make its firework entertainment enjoyable for blind people, Disney theme parks have introduced a new technology.
The Disney Research team has come up with a new method that allows blind visitors to experience the show via touch.
The technology uses multiple water jets that mimic the effects of fireworks. These can be felt by the blind visitors in the Disney parks.
The water jets spray the water on flexible screens and there are different nozzles for different firework effects.
The ‘Feeling Fireworks’ is an attempt to make the park more accessible and inclusive for people with disabilities.
